People v. DH
Our Client was charged with Felony Retail Theft. It was alleged that our Client attempted to remove several hundred dollars worth of merchandise from Macy's. We were able to successfully negotiate the Deferred Prosecution Program for our Client. As long as he completes the program, all Felony charges will be dismissed.
People v. EM
Our Client was charged with Felony Possession of a Controlled Substance. Officers alleged that they stopped our Client for driving the wrong way down a one-way street. The testifying officer claimed to have seen our Client reach into his pocket and stuff a golf ball size bag of narcotics into his mouth and begin to chew and swallow it. The testifying officer stated that he grabbed our Client at which point the bag exploded and several small bags flew out of our Client's mouth into the passenger compartment of the car. The problem with the officer's testimony was that he said he saw our Client pull this golf ball sized item out of his pocket while our Client was seated in the driver's seat of a Hummer and the Officer, who admitted to being only 5'3" stood outside. At 5'3", there is no way for the officer to make the observation he claimed to have made because of the size of the vehicle. All charged were dismissed at the Preliminary Hearing.
People v. TS
Our Client was charged with Aggravated Unlawful use of a Weapon by a Convicted Felon. He was facing from 3-7 years, mandatory prison time. The prosecution offered 3 years in prison. We rejected their offer and took the case to trial. At trial, Officers testified that they were serving a search warrant on a single family home. Our Client was listed as the target of the search warrant. However, our Client was not there. Officers did not know when the last time, if ever he was in the residence. In a bedroom, they found our Client's social security card, a training certificate with our Client's name on it, a piece of mail addressed to our Client (with the next door address on it though, not the address they were searching), multiple items of mail clothing and shoes, pictures, 2 guns and some ammunition. The prosecution argued at trial that because the items which can, without a doubt, be said to have belonged to our Client (social security card, training certificate, letter, pictures), then the guns and ammo also must belong to our Client. We argued that there was not enough evidence to show constructive possession of the guns and ammo by our client. Therefore, there was reasonable doubt and the State failed to meet their burden. We were victorious.
People v. ES
Our Client was charged with Felony Burglary to a Vehicle. It was alleged that our Client, along with 2 accomplices, broke into a vehicle and stole $1500 worth of work tools. Someone tried to stop our Client while fleeing the scene, and our Client attacked that person. The entire incident was caught on video. We were able to convince the prosecution to offer our Client a special type of probation that, if completed successfully, allows our Client to eventually removed the charge from his record.
